Glowing fashions let consumers shine from day to night

Implications - Fashionistas on the hunt for new styles typically have one goal in common: to stand apart from the crowd. The fashion industry is usually quick to meet this demand, and light-up apparel is one way designers are doing so. Glow-in-the-dark fashions kick up normal styles several notches, turning basic ensembles into illuminated sights to behold. For the true style-maven, glowing pieces also work double-duty to show off other parts of a masterfully put-together outfit.
